That's good to hear. I also feel that way after about a year of ownership (2011 Ram) but it took the completion of multiple performance mods to get me there. Now, I look forward to driving anywhere...even to the dentist.

Yup me too! I love just going for a drive. Traffic after work doesn't even bother me.

I'm right there with you! 18 months of ownership and 53,000 km's I still love going anywhere in the Ram. Even enjoy towing the holiday trailer....and the longer the drive....the better

I've only had mine for 5 months, but have almost 10,000 miles on it. I had a 4 hour drive last night and 3.5 hours this morning. I felt like I could have kept driving forever. It's been a long time since I've been that comfortable driving. It helped that I was getting the best mileage I've gotten so far. The EVIC was reading 19.7, so I was around 18.5 actual. Absolutely love this truck.

Ive always hated driving, however, that all changed when I got my Ram. I did 6.5 hours a week ago and it didn't but me. I'm driving 2800 miles next month and have no worry about it
